Michelle Obama debuted new highlights during a recent appearance in Miami,FL where she touted the Affordable Healthcare Act. See pics inside.....

FLOTUS Michelle Obama, shown above with Robin Roberts and BET CEO Debra Lee appeared at the Leading Women Defined Summit (LWD) in Miami on Wednesday.  LWD is the vision of Debra Lee to bring together the nation’s most prominent African American women to help set a national agenda in the black community surrounding health and holistic well-being.

Comprised of several events, “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts received the Butterfly Award at the Dorothy Height luncheon for her extraordinary courage and unwavering commitment to service and leadership in her community.

And at yesterday's luncheon attended by a few of our faves, Robin Roberts sat down to chat with Mrs. O herself.

In a press release from BET, Debra said,

“We are so excited to have the First Lady join us for this important and much needed discussion on health and well-being. Leading Women Defined allows participants to engage in constructive dialogue to help set actionable solutions for a national agenda aimed towards positively impacting the Black community.”

"Being Mary Jane" star Gabrielle Union (wearing a Copper Canyon outfit) and director/creator/writer Mara Brock Akil were among the attendees who enjoyed the First Lady's chat with Robin Roberts during LWD.

 

In addition to LWD, the First Lady stopped to chat with folks at the Jessie Trice Community Health Center in Miami.

First Lady Michelle (shown above in photos taken at the Jessie Trice Community Health Care Center) told those gathered at the center, "No one in this country should have to go without insurance and now you don't have to."

During the appearance, she walked around speaking with four certified application counselors (who helped enroll attendees) and talked to several people who had yet to enroll. "In the African-American community, unfortunately, 1 in 5 of us are not insured and the numbers are no better in the Hispanic community," she said.

Is Obamacare a success? For FLOTUS, the answer is yes. She added, "Because of your work we've got four million people who have signed up for healthcare and that is a milestone."

Love a First Lady who goes out and actually walks the walk with the PEOPLE.

Get into it, and get insured!
